Venture to the Arctic area of Canada for the experience of a lifetime. This is the ultimate husky ranch and dogsled experience for the real explorers among us who are looking for an adventurous volunteer abroad project! Have the opportunity to work with pure white huskies, dog sled and gaze at the amazing northern lights or the midnight sun! Or go summer dog mushing and get the experience of guiding tours and training dogs with all-terrain vehicles called 4-wheelers.  This is fun and exciting and happens almost on a daily basis.   

This ranch needs volunteers all year round and has many great opportunities! This project is located in the remotest northern corner of mainland Canada tucked between the icy Beaufort Sea and the mighty Mackenzie river delta. This great experience lets you relive the frontier days where your accommodation will be in style without some of the luxury comforts of the modern world. This ranch is an extremely popular volunteer abroad project and is a great place to experience the Canadian Arctic areas. You will have many opportunities to dogsled during the extra-long winter and of course play /care for the huskies! This project has excellent opportunities in the winter however, summer has its own advantages with extra-long warm days and many opportunities to explore. When volunteering for more than 4 weeks it is important to keep in mind that the program is not with a registered charity therefore you will be required to apply for a working holiday visa. Also, The work on the ranch is physically demanding and it is by no means an’ easy holiday option’! Please consider that you are in a very remote area and this is not the place to be if you are solely interested in pubs and clubs and socializing with people in town. You will always have lots of time to spend with the dogs. Just cuddle or take them for a walk, brush them or take a husky to your room for the night! You will have one day off every week to relax and enjoy leisure time with the dogs or go canoeing or hiking. 

In all cases volunteers will always have lots of time to spend with the dogs. Just cuddle or take them for a walk, brush them or play with them! 
You will have one day off every week and there’s lots of things to do! You can go hiking, biking or canoeing. The nature around the husky lodge is very beautiful with thousands of lakes nearby.

Requirements:
  • Required to commit to a minimum of 4 weeks – Preferably longer
  • Be punctual - Show up on time for work
  • NO SMOKING or DRINKING is allowed on the property.
  • Bush and Forest Fires are an enormous concern during the hot dry summers!!
  • Strong work ethics are required: reliable, responsible, honest, good sense of humour, dependable, physically and mentally fit. 
  • Never yell at dogs except to stop a fight.
  • Do not put food between dogs – make sure that food is directly in front of the dog it is intended for.
  • Working Holiday visa required (we can assist you with the application)
  • Do not leave anything hazardous or any personal items around the dogs – out of curiosity, they may consume something toxic or harmful. Safety is top priority!
  • Make sure you complete your work to the appropriate standard
  • Speak up if you do not feel comfortable completing a task
  • Keep all personal belongings outside of client areas
  • Age: 18-35

The project is located in the most northern part of the Northwest Territory. There is a small frontier town located near the project. This is also where you will be picked up from the airport however you will first have to book an international flight to Whitehorse, Yukon. From there you will take a domestic flight (cost around 700 CA$ for a return ticket, however the flight is amazing). If you are searching for lots of contact with other people, night life or coffee bars, then this is not the place for you. You can enjoy a number of leisure activities on their days off. During the winter there are excellent opportunities to enjoy skiing, snowshoeing and walks on beautiful trails right from the property.  However, the summer has its own advantages  with extra long warm days and many opportunities to hike on a nice nature trail, canoe on the lake behind the guest cabins or do some fishing. Any other tours on a day off  would be covered by the volunteers own expense.

Tagesablauf

Volunteers and Interns are the backbone of the organization. This is a medium sized family run kennel with only pure white Siberian huskies.  
Attitude is the first thing the project looks for in a dog. There dogs are really well-known for strength, will-power and determination as well as for their friendliness.You will take part in one or more of the following tasks:

  • Construction/maintenance/general labour
  • Dog yard (working with the dogs)
  • Garden or yard work
  • Cleaning guest cabins and rental cars
Keep in mind that you will not be spending your whole day working with the dogs. You will be working a few hours per day with the dogs and your other time will be spend to help the lodge.  There will be many tasks involved that might not be so interesting at times. It is good to keep in mind that this project is great because it allows you to live affordable in the Artic, while volunteering with huskies and getting the opportunity to dogsled!!!

For more information regarding your typical day please contact us.
